Ends 31 December 2024
Tokai, Western Cape , -

The Sculpture Garden at Norval Foundation features three-dimensional and installation-based artworks by artists from South Africa and Africa. The unique site, bisected by a protected Cape Lowland Freshwater Wetland and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Western Cape, features flora that are indigenous to the area. The placement of artwork takes the site into consideration, using the contours of the garden to hide and reveal work, creating an experience of discovery for the viewer. The building has been designed so that the Western side gives way onto the Sculpture Garden at multiple points, allowing visitors access from the galleries, building connections between exhibitions taking place both inside and outside.

Obscured within the Cape Lowland Freshwater Wetland of Norval Foundation’s Sculpture Garden, As Yet Untitled’s physical presence is inconspicuous, with a utilitarian visual language reminiscent of scientific apparatus and municipal infrastructure. The sounds are produced in response to the astronomical phenomena taking place in the skies above the Foundation, controlled by software which has been specifically programmed for this purpose.

Kapwani Kiwanga: Shady

Ends 23 January 2023
Tokai, Western Cape , -

Atrium - Until 9 January 2023

Kapwani Kiwanga is a Franco-Canadian artist based in Paris, whose work traces the pervasive impact of powerful asymmetries. Kapwani Kiwanga: Shady is an exciting exhibition on a large scale. The artworks name and semi-transparency also plays upon the politics of visibility and invisibility. Though the work was created in response to the Canadian context, the themes conveyed by the artwork are easily transferred to the South African context, given their shared history of colonialism and industrial agriculture.

When Rain Clouds Gather: Black South African Women Artists, 1940 – 2000 is a reflection upon the influential and often unacknowledged contributions of Black women to South African art history in the twentieth century. Expressed through a Black African feminist lens and curated by Portia Malatjie and Nontobeko Ntombela, the exhibition is a cross-generational communion of 40 Black women artists, spanning from early Modernism to the contemporary period. When Rain Clouds Gather invites us to think critically about Black women’s archives and the tools used to engage with them, while also taking pleasure in their aesthetic ingenuity.
